Great. Cannondale finally enters the era of ugly aero bikes. It was about time. I'll keep my CAAD10.

'Best' picture I found:

From the front and back it looks nice. Some proper photos would do it justice imo. The paint scheme is cool to me personally, and I think it looks better than a Venge or the stupid ugly giant that just came out.

Pretty bland.
Every single bike in the history of Cannondale has been straight tubes and basic triangles. They finally make an aero bike with shaped tubes, some curves, and a different geometry, and you call it bland? Thanks for trolling. :thumbup:

With a different cockpit and wheels, I think I like it

I would be very surprised if it doesn’t go to market with an in-house cockpit. FSA sponsor the team so they are supplying wheels, bars etc.

I agree, it’s looking better than the first few images suggested

Yes, a fresh pair of eyes on it and I'm thinking that I might like it if I see a proper pic of it around the size I'd usually buy (54cm). Slammed one-piece cockpit, eTap and that Vision stuff gone and we may have a good looking aero bike here 8)

Well, for my tastes anyway

Haven't seen something more ugly for a while.

But indeed it looks like even in production color schemes, the Cannondale logo will be covered by the crankset :noidea:

Beyond grim.

You can keep your 'aero' if this is the outcome.

Nooo! My eyes! If Cannondale is going to put its new flagship bike on display you’d think they’d pick a color other than puke green and cut the spacers so it looks racier.
